You can read my response here and here.
Today, they are still finding a voice to their outrageous and unfounded criticisms.
Most teenagers I know (which includes my daughters) wouldn't use the lip gloss. They always said that Mary Kay was for "old" women! And I too wouldn't let any daughter of mine under the age of 12 or 13 wear any colored lip gloss.
Is the lip gloss for girls and the banks for boys?
If I remember correctly, a good amount of that product "leaked". That certainly would be a surprise in the stocking of some unsuspecting teen Christmas morning
My request is simple.
Remove this post. Remove ALL of the ridiculous comments.
My reason is simple.
Mary Kay has generously donated to people in need. Those people (and those people alone) have the right to appreciate or judge this gift.
If ANY of you dares to call yourself a follower of Christ, please ask yourselves if your tactless indictment comes from the new heart you received. If not, from where are you drawing this hostility?
I will say again. Anyone that has posted a ridicule against these people being blessed should recant their statement. If not on Pink Truth, at least do so here.
This is unacceptable. You talk about sleeping at night. How's that going for you? Can you honestly live with yourself knowing that you have condemned a gift before it has even been given? Are you the one in such dire circumstances that you are reduced to receiving the charity of others? Do you know how that feels? How dare you reject something on behalf of those that are so grateful?
I would love to form a line of those receiving this gift from Mary Kay. Single file. Standing in front of this line facing the recipients would be a representative from Mary Kay and a representative from Pink Truth. Everyone in line would be informed of what has transpired here. They would be told, "Mary Kay (represented by ....) has donated the lip-gloss and/or poodle bank you just received." "Pink Truth (represented by ...) claimed that it was shameful for them to do this and that they should have just trashed that newly treasured gift you just received."
Everyone in that line would then get the chance to speak their mind and/or interact with either/both of them.
Pink Truth, I again implore you. Take back your hateful poisonous words. They do no one any good. You can hate Mary Kay as much as you want. But this helps no one.
Anyone who would like to add your voice to my plea, please comment here.
Also, if you have not already been banned on that site (it's all the rage these days, welcome Shay of SC!) and would like to make the most of your "one shot", this may be your time!
Something along the lines of:
"This criticism of an organizations generosity should not be tolerated. Please remove this post and all of its comments."
Or of course create your own wording. You will have to sign up for an account there. You will have to provide an email address -please don't use your primary email address as I have no idea what will be done with it- and check your email to activate your account. It is pretty simple, and after you get banned you may have a hard time viewing their site. Please only do this if you feel strongly about this. I am very passionate that this is not just "a bad thing", it is wrong.
Tracy, I will appeal directly to you here. I have no problem with you disliking Mary Kay. "To each his own", right? But THIS is unacceptable. Please. Search your heart and do the right thing.
Thank you all.
